The taxonomy package published by ESMA, typically in a .zip file format, is not intended to be read by people directly. That said, modern ESEF reporting software can load the information in those files and provide a user-friendly view of all the available elements—and even allow searching by keyword.
Workiva offers a free version of our Taxonomy Analyzer, a valuable component of our end-to-end financial reporting and compliance solution. This allows people to browse and search concepts in multiple taxonomies.
UPDATE: The Taxonomy Analyzer is now available for ESEF customers.
